    What GPA do you need to get into American International College?

    American International College’s average GPA is 2.91. American International College does require GPA. American International College is currently selective. However, be aware that oftentimes schools in this GPA range are increasing their selectivity in hope of increasing “prestige”. We can’t read the minds of AIC application readers, but they likely want to increase the average GPA from 2.91 to 3.06 this year - to play it safe, we recommend striving for the 3.06 GPA.

    *BEFORE CONTINUING PLEASE NOTE: GPA and “prestige” DO NOT mean a college is right for you. American International College may seem amazing on paper, but you may hate it... That’s why 700,000 students transfer colleges every year - they end up going to the wrong school. It’s crucial to watch the videos on CampusReel and make sure you can envision yourself on AIC’s campus. These AIC admission statistics do not sufficiently tell you what a college or university is like.

    Acceptance Rate 69.0 % 72.0 % 63.16 %

    As you can see, American International College is getting more and more difficult to get into. If this trend continue it’s likely that AIC will be even more competitive by the time you apply.

    Acceptance rate alone does not indicate your likelihood for getting into AIC - it’s a very high level understanding of the true competition. Use the acceptance rate as a general guide for curating a list of 10-15 schools that fall into different ranges of competitiveness. Then, use the below data to get a deeper understanding of how your application will compare to the rest of the pool.

    How to get into AIC

    Follow these steps to maximize your chances of getting into AIC. Everything you read above will help prepare you for what you need to achieve to have a shot at AIC, but these steps will take you even further in applying that knowledge and differentiating your application.

    Main Academic Excellence that is in line with AIC admission standards.

    1. Score at least a 876 on the SAT or 19 on the ACT.
    2. Maintain a GPA of at least a 2.91.

    Join Extracurriculars that Align with AIC’s Values.

    1. Join your school band, a sports team or another group activity. If American International College values music heavily, for example, then try to participate in an organization related to that topic.
    2. Volunteer in your hometown. Springfield has tons of ways to be involved beyond just the college. American International College wants applicants that are also good ambassadors for the school - they want students who will give back to the local community and broader Springfield area in general.
    3. Spend your summer doing something that speaks to your values, personal growth, leadership qualities and other less quantifiable characteristics. AIC needs to see past your test scores and grades - they need to know that you will be a valuable and contributing member of their community. You are more than grades and test scores - your experiences should demonstrate that.

    Prepare Your Application

    1. Write a stellar essay that shows American International College something they can’t figure out from the other parts of your application. For a detailed guide on writing the best college essay, check this out.
    2. Get teacher recs that speak to your character. If you know what you’re majoring in and include that in your AIC app, try to have at least 1 recommendation from a teacher in that department.
    3. Apply Before the Deadline. Too many students wait until the last minute to submit their application, and too much can go wrong during this precious time window. Since many students are applying on the last day, it’s possible that AIC’s own system crashes. Don’t risk the added stress this can cause - submit your app a few days early.
